I have 1GB DDR RAM and now, only 504Mb are showing up... I looked somethings up on Google and found that whoever has 512Mb with onboard graphics automatically loses 8MB of RAM to the adapter, thus 504+8 = 512Mb, but where have my other 512MB gone?
P.S: My PC is now running on a PCI-Express VGA, it's an XFX GeForce 8600GT 512 MB.

Dear! If monitor showes power but not showes display its means that monitor requires heat and it very better if you can give sun-rays. I assure your monitor will work if you do that for 4 hours. Check your monitor sepreatly with another system or computer if it works that means your VGA card not supported so you should change your VGA card but first check your monitor.

More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.
Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...
